From Siblings to Cousins: Prospering in the Third Generation and Beyond
Statistics show that many family businesses fail by the third generation-- those that survive are able to navigate the transition from a sibling run business to an expanded family run business. Here Aronoff and Ward show siblings and cousins how to work together on key issues that are critical to the future success of the business including how to attract the most capable family members into leadership roles, how to develop agreement among many owners, and how to create a "cousin collaboration" which will go a long way to determining the prosperity and fortune of your firm.
